Bandon GAA - Revised Lotto Draw - 13/05/2019

Following a review of the Bandon GAA Lotto, I am delighted to announce that Bandon GAA Club will be relaunching our weekly Club Lotto in June 2019 with a new Mega Jackpot prize starting at €15,000 rising by €200 weekly to maximum €20,000. This will be the largest Lotto Jackpot prize in the Bandon catchment area. If no weekly Mega Jackpot winner is found, Bandon GAA Club will offer a Consolation Jackpot starting at €500 and increasing €100 weekly to maximum €10,000.

The weekly Lotto and Annual Membership fees are the main source of income that covers monthly expenses such as lighting, heating, purchase of training equipment, player injury fund & public insurance, county and carbery affiliation fees,...etc.

Unfortunately, over the past number of years the Bandon GAA Lotto funding has significantly declined because

1. Less Club members (Players, Committee Members, Supporters) signing up or renewing their Lotto membership.

2. More competition from other Club Lottos around Bandon. (regular Lotto Players tend to follow the largest weekly Jackpot prize)

3. Decline in number of Authorised Ticket Sellers for Bandon GAA Club Lotto.

4. Decline in number of Lotto Selling Outlets around town (example: large number of Pubs or Shops have closed down in past 5 years around Bandon)

How does the Lotto Player win a prize?

Select 3 numbers from 1 to 30 and 1 Bonus number from 1 to 10. Ticket cost €2 each.

• Match 3 + Bonus Numbers to Win the Mega Jackpot Prize.

In the event of two or more winners the Mega Jackpot and Consolation Jackpot will be shared equally.
